"It’s been four years since my diagnosis, and my neurologist believes that my commitment to intense training has slowed the progression of my symptoms.

I believe you’ve gotta sweat. A stroll on the beach, although good for the soul, and I recommend that too, doesn’t accomplish much in slowing down Parkinson’s."

Tom Sheppard tells us how being active has helped him live well with Parkinson's.

Daaaaaaaaang!!! Maybe don’t try this at home, though!

2AM hotel room workouts... no one came and yelled at me for using equipment for their “non-intended” use. Working on balance after a short treadmill 5k. I tell you, that little tremor throws the rest of the body off whack more than you can imagine.

Wouldn’t it be amazing to be 72 and still moving this well with this much strength?! Starting NOW by addressing areas of weakness and lack of mobility will set you up for a long life of healthy movement and enjoying a strong body! Movement is medicine, and we can show you how. 💪🏼

“Our study is observational and exploratory, but upon independent validation patients should be informed in the early stages of PD about the need to immediately start reducing their cardiovascular risk factors including optimal control of blood pressure and type 2 diabetes,” wrote first author Brit Mollenhauer, MD, of Paracelsus-Elena-Klinik (Kassel, Germany), and colleagues with the DeNoPa Study Group.

“[C]linicians should pay attention to lifestyle interventions, including nutritional and physical activity in middle age even before the onset of PD,” they advised”

Exercise, exercise, exercise, right? But what does it DO? Have you heard of BDNF?

It stands for “brain derived neurotrophic factor” and this protein plays an important role in protecting those precious dopamine producing cells that we all have and need in our bodies but are short in supply for people with Parkinson’s.

Studies show that appropriately dosed and intense exercise can raise BDNF levels in the brain! 🧠

This is evidence that exercise is neuro protective!

More exercise ⏩more BDNF ⏩more dopamine producing cells ⏩ less severe Parkinson’s (both movement and mood symptoms!!!)

Please take a moment to participate in a survey on complementary care.

I want to encourage all our PWR!Gym members and anyone with PD to participate in this very important study trying to identify the lifestyle factors associated with slower disease progression! This information may help people in the future by providing information about what you can do to stay better and live well with PD. Dr. Mischley has already identified many of these factors related to diet, social connection, and exercise (type of exercise and intensity) and these type of studies are more powerful the larger they are!

Great boxing video! Thanks DopaFit-Parkinson's Wellness Center

In this video, we give you a couple exercises to do when you can not make it to your Parkinson’s boxing class.
First, we work on our 1-2 combo. The focus is on extension of your arms and keeping those hands up. A lot of people living with PD have frozen shoulders. Making sure we reach with our punches can help gain a better range of motion.
Along with a 1-2 combo is some jumping jacks. We demonstrate a few different methods that make jumping jacks accessible for everyone.
Next, we work on our lead hook or also called 3. A fun combination to work on is a 1-2-3 or 1-3-2. A 1-3-2 combo challenges the brain because we have to throw two punches with the same hand back to back.
We hope you enjoy and you can find more videos like this on our website


Great summary!

"Habitual Exercisers Versus Sedentary Subjects with Parkinson’s Disease
This month’s research corner highlights the best evidence to date for why you need to exercise starting from diagnosis (even before) and not stop when you are diagnosed with Parkinson disease (PD)…. And, it explains what we mean when we say “Exercise is a physiological tool in your fight against Parkinson disease.” Since it is one of my favorites, I have taken the time to summarize it for everyone. See you at the PWR!Gym! Becky . . ."
